Changing Places facility Dundee city centre

This petition had 2,197 supporters

Hello my name is Jen my little girl is 3 and has a complex medical condition relating to her bowel and bladder, living in Dundee we have found it hard to find suitable places to change her when I'm in the city centre, I have started this petition to forward to the council to consider installing changing places facilities in the centre and around Dundee where possible, I have spoken to lots of others now who are having the same issues with the current disabled facilities, too small, no hoists, no changing bed, people are lying disabled people adults and children on the toilet floor which is really inappropriate and degrading not to mention extremely unhygienic, others are changing in cars or just leaving and going home, some people have open/exposed wounds/sites like stomas, catheters and gastric feeding sites which are exposed to infection using these facilities, others and struggling to lift a disabled person on to the floor or toilet which can hurt the person and the carer, this is something I believe to be such a natural unthought about task of using the bathroom to some, to an anxiety filled ordeal to others that require lots of planning ahead, I feel in this day and age it's not a huge ask to have some of these changing places facilities in Dundee, a person is entitled to feel safe and at ease, be moved safety and in a clean well equipt environment, I am passionate about finding out about these facilities and doing whatever I can to help have these installed, as a community please support this need and stick together being a voice together for the people of Dundee, thank you, if you would like to know more about these facilities please look at the changing places website,
